Barrow: No intention of letting up says manager Pete Wild

Barrow have no intention of letting up after surpassing last season's points total with eight games to go.

A home victory over Newport County on Saturday took them to 64 points, two better than last season.

They sit sixth in League Two, are unbeaten in their last five games, and are on course for a play-off spot.

"We'll take a lot of pride from that, but the that's not us finished," said manager Pete Wild.

He told BBC Radio Cumbria: "It's an outstanding achievement. I'm so proud of every player and member of staff."

The Bluebirds are in their fourth season back in the EFL since promotion from the National League.

Finishing ninth last year was their best effort, but they have been in the play-off positions this campaign since early November.

However, Wild said their fine season has not been driven by studying league tables.

"We wanted 1.5 points per game, which gives you 69," he said.

"Let's go after that next, but the catalyst for this season is to concentrate on the next game. So all our focus is now towards Grimsby on Friday."
